Down to the Wire


Published 1978


Shot by award winning cinematographer Conrad Buff, "Down to the Wire" is a portrait of naval aviation cadets struggling to receive their carrier wings circa 1970. To become qualified as a carrier jet pilot, a variety of tasks must be mastered from "touch-and-go's" on land to that first hairy carrier landing at sea. The famed Essex class carrier USS Lexington (CV/CVA/CVS/CVT/AVT-16), known as "The Blue Ghost", appears in the film.
